If you are selling your home in the Fall or Winter here are some handy tips to keep in mind:

Clean up those walk ways and keep them free from leaves or snow.

Plant seasonal flowers but don't over do it as you don't want to distract from the home itself.

If you have a fireplace make sure that you have it inspected and cleaned before turning it on. This will not only protect you and your family but it will also reassure a prospective buyer that the home has been maintained.

If it's chilly outside light that fireplace and show the buyer how cozy and warm your house can be.

An easy thing for anyone to do is  change your light bulbs. While the summertime lends itself to lots of natural sunlight ,these seasons don't and can make your home look dark so changing your light bulbs to brighter ones adds that sunshine feel indoors.  A good thing to do as well is to open blinds and drapes to let any natural light in.

Another tip is to entice buyers with smells that stimulate their senses. No ,not  smoke or pet smells, those are absolute turn offs, but ones that invoke childhood memories or that of family . I'm talking of fresh baked cookies or warm apple pie.  Yum !

Clean, declutter and depersonalize ! You want to make a buyer think that this home is little maintenance and that they can imagine themselves and Their family living in the home instead of yours. 

The most important thing to remember no matter that no matter the time of year you're selling in , the list price of your home needs to be right. If you don't price well, it will sit on the market and buyers may wonder what's wrong with it.

Proper preparation of your home both inside and out can be a recipe for success.

Keep these points in mind and hopefully it will increase your chances of sealing the deal before springs arrives! 

Best of luck !
